The Blackhawks have signed Michal Rozsival to a one-year contract extension.
In the expansion draft you need to expose one defenseman who have played 40 games this season or 70 games combined in the last two seasons and be under contract next season—that’s what this signing is for. The Blackhawks have signed Rozsival in order to expose him to Las Vegas this summer.
Rozsival was a healthy scratch for the first six games of the season, but will play tonight vs. the Flames. Rozsival, who had 13 points (1G / 12A) in 51 games last year, will replace Michal Kempny in the lineup on Monday.
Rozsival was a healthy scratch in the last two games, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Red Wings. Rozsival has one goal and five assists in 37 games this season. Christian Ehrhoff will come out of the lineup to make room for the veteran blueliner.
The Blackhawks have activated Michal Rozsival (ankle) from LTIR.
